I am in my mid-40's and still thin because I follow this diet: No white flour, white sugar, white rice, or white potatoes. Instead, I eat whole grains, honey, brown rice, and sweet potatoes. I never eat foods containing partially-hydrogenated oils. I eat a lot of fruit, vegetables, fish, poultry, nuts, and whole grains. I never skip meals and snack freely. Exercise is essential. So is taking vitamin and mineral supplements. Good luck on your diet!
Avoid refined (white flours and white rice) sugars, caffeine, and exercise. If you can't avoid sugars or refined foods, take 1-2 capsule of cinnamon, or sprinkle cinnamon on the food if possible. This helps keep the blood sugar from spiking too quickly. This especially helps insulin resistance.
Drink 16 ounces of water 1 hour before each meal and before bedtime. Also don't eat or drink anything that contains refined sugar. Exercise is recommnended for the purpose of toning while losing the weight. Suggested minimum requirement is walking 20 to 30 minuntes(continuously) 4 times a week.
The amount of food you eat or what you eat has nothing to do with your weight. I was a size 24 and went down to a size 6 . I eat whatever I want, including chocolate and how much I want. EXCERCISE IS THE KEY. If you walk a lot you can lose weight. You must burn more calories than you take in. I have kept if off for 27 years. starving yourself can make you anemic.
